    board is expired. not yet ready to set to fix it site. R162 is 'burnt up' and none of the caps appear 'swollen'. Both diode bridge rectifiers test 'good' as far as the diodes go, but one of them at least and all the high wattage resistors got 'loose'...connection eyelets to board lifted a bit, but are still good electrically.

SOURCE: dim display.

The display sits on a circuit board. Pull the board out and replace capacitor C3. It is 68 micro farads. I used a 47 from Radio Shack and it works great. If you can find a 68, that would be ok too, of course!

SOURCE: My clock and temperature display is dim

Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.

If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.

Jenn-Air oven display blank. Only works when oven has heated up.

I had the same problem and just fixed it myself today. Not sure if your timer board is the same but I replaced capacitor C3 35volt 68uf. I also have the dark spot on the clock glass in the corner but it still works. I purchased the cap from P10292-ND. I also replaced the cap next to it 35volt 470uf P10301-ND not sure if that was necessary but it smelled a little burnt. The display is normal brighness again - total cost 1/2 hour of my time and $4 parts and shipping. Digi-Key is great I ordered the parts on Thursday 7/23 and got it today 7/25.

Display on my Jenn-Air electric wall oven is very dim

I had the same problem and found the solution on-line.
Replace the C3 capacitor on the dispaly module. (100 UF, 35 volt, high temperature)
The local Jenn Air dealer wanted $211 for a new display module.
I purchased a Cap from a local electronics supply store for 79cents.
The only problem is that you need to have a soldering pencil/iron, a solder ******/wick and a small amount of solder.

Steps I had to take on my oven:
- Flip the AC breaker supplying the oven to off to be save
- remove 3 screws on top and 4 on the bottom of the display panel
- gently pull out the display panel and unplug the 2 cables to the display
- unclip the ribbon cable to the display module
- unclip the module itself by pushing on the 2 black tabs
- locate C3
- unsolder C3 and replace with new Cap- keeping the polarity strip the same as theh old Cap
- reasemble in reverse order.

It took me all of 20 minutes. It may sound difficult but is very easy if you have the tools
Good Luck

Oven digital display not working well

I got your fix no prob. This is going to cost you a buck fifty, that's $1.50, I say it dollar and fifty cents! Got your attention yet?
Here's the solution to a dim display or non working display when the oven otherwise works.
1. Turn off your circut breakers to your oven, then remove the display and control panel via the screws you see on the top or underneith. There will be about 4-7 screws based on your model oven. You'll pull it either up or down depending on the model by grabbing with both hands on either side of the panal after you have removed the screws. 2. Carfully remove the three or four ribbon cables connecting the display panal to the oven electrically. This should be done carfully and only after the power is shut off to your ovens by the circut breaker or unplugging them. 3. Pull the display panel out by unlatching the black plastic snap holders. Using a soldering iron (costs about 15 bucks at radio shack), remove the C3 (68uF 35V) capacitor from the board. Replace it with the 100uF 35V capacitor from radio shack or digikey for $1.50 +tax. If you don't know how to solder, well you can learn for about 15 minutes of your time, or you'll have to resort to paying your repair man over 300 bucks to fix it himself and the best part. HE CAN'T SOLDER EITHER! He'll replace the whole display LCD because that's the most profitable choice for him and Jenn-Air/Matag. 4. After getting upset at how easy this fix was, put the oven together and rejoice that you just fixed your display problem for less then 2 dollars and about and hour of your time considering the search the brought you here. Cheers to you and to me for letting you know about this. Share all the knowledge you have with others. It's free money!

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

Display light

Found out that I could replace the C3 capacitor with a 100uF 35V (high temperature - 105 C). Spent $1.69 for the capacitor and 1/2 hour taking the unit out, soldering the new capacitor in, and remounting the upper clock unit back on the oven. Works like a charm. No need to buy the whole Clock/Temp unit, waste of money.

There is a replacement display assembly, i think its around $150-$200. Its pretty easy to change if you are at all mechanically inclined. Good Luck!
